Earlier today, Samsung announced that it has managed to sell more than 30 million units of the Galaxy S and the Galaxy S II worldwide. The company also stated that the Galaxy S II has managed to sell more than 10 million units in just 5 months.
Now, Apple has just released a press release announcing that they have managed to sell more than 4 million units of the iPhone 4S, in just three days after its launch on October 14. Yes, that’s a whopping 4 million units! The handset is available only in selected regions of the world including the U.S, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and the U.K, and has still managed to achieve the 4 million sales figures.
This is the same phone, which disappointed many people when it was announced. If seen from the naked eye, the iPhone 4 and the 4S are exactly the same, but internally the later packs some serious changes including a blazing fast A5 chip, 8MP camera, Siri and world-roaming capabilities.
Before all Apple fanboys start comparing the sales figure of iPhone 4S to the Samsung Galaxy S II, they should remember that there are many other Android handsets which people buy. The iPhone 4S is the only handset running iOS5, while in the Android eco-system, there are nearly 10 dual-core powered handsets, available in different shapes and sizes, with or without 4G LTE support etc. A fair comparison is only possible if the sales figures of all the high-end Android handsets are collectively compared against the iPhone 4S sales figure.
